LIMITS VS. STRETCHING-YOUR-LIMITS: As a-wanna-be Leader; if you have exceeded your limits, than simply …move the limitation-line over. One’s limitations are, more often than not… self-imposed, with the theoretical boundary-line being kept to themselves.
A good Leader will push themselves to the limits; setting new limits, than push them out further, again and …again. It’s really no different that “re-setting one’s goals.” If we don’t learn to STRETCH ourselves, than we cease to grow. Given that scenario… our Leadership status could be called into question.
Good leaders don’t just quit being good-leaders; their Leadership Role becomes limited, usually, because they have stopped expanding their horizons…. they quit stretching their boundaries. If you are a “good leader,” than you should know no limits. Keep stretching.
If a Leader has a NARROW set of boundaries, then likely, (s)he would not be a SUSTAINING LEADER. Leaders with “limited boundaries” belong in the MINOR LEAGUE.
There were many “spiritual leaders,” throughout the Bible, such as: Moses, Jacob, Peter and Paul, and the rest of the Apostles, but most of all… Jesus. The former had limited leadership roles until after the death of Jesus. It was then, that the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles, blessing them with “spiritual knowledge and skills,” that they would need to carry out the “living word.” The latter, Jesus, on the other hand, possessed all the KNOWLEDGE and SKILL-SET that He would ever need, from the beginning of time. Jesus had no “limitations.” Even though He had “human limitations,” He “also had” the POWER of God, at His command; which has “no limits.”
Matthew 26:53 confirms His Power…”Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?
In order to work within our own “human limitations,” we must learn to set PRIORITIES, as told to us in Luke 16:13: “No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.”
